Your pt wants to observe? How do feel about that? I don't think I'd want another person in there with me.

yes, he does. i think it is a good idea because he is always wanting to learn new things, he would then know what exactly is done on the knee as he is not quite sure why the graston techinque is not working. the graston technique is where they break up scar tissue incase you forgot. he would not come in until i am already to be cut open, after everything is ready.

You will have surgery to clean out scar tissue right ?
If so there's no wonder why your knee swell right now.
Interesting that your PT want to look and learn. But that's good for both him and you.

That is good. I would believe that the swelling will be better once the scar tissue is out.
